After all, today’s furnaces are more energy efficient than ever, with new technology that keeps your home comfortable and keeps your energy bills as low as possible.

If it’s time for a new furnace, you may be wondering how long does it take to install a new furnace? As with all complex systems, the answer is “it depends.” Each type of furnace, each home, each installation site, and each configuration requires slightly different techniques to install, and therefore requires a different amount of time to install. If the new, energy efficient furnace is replacing a prior unit, it could require different hoses or electrical connections to be run, or new leveling material to be put in to accommodate a different unit size, etc.

Generally, the average furnace takes 4 to 6 hours to install, from the time the technicians arrive to the time they clean up and test the new system to ensure it is functioning properly. If you’re significantly changing your furnace – say, from a lower-efficiency unit to a high-efficiency unit – it could take at the upper range of that timeline or even more time to make all of the adjustments. However, that effort and time is well worth it, as a new energy-efficient system could save you thousands of dollars per year in energy bills, making it a worthwhile investment for your home.

Getting a quote for a new furnace and then spending 4 to 6 hours on installation could be an investment in your home that pays off not only in annual energy bills but also in your home’s value.

For the few hours of time that it takes to install a new furnace in your home, it could be one of the best investments of your time all year.
